Laser Treatment – Pilot Diode Laser Therapy
Briggs Chiropractic & Physical Therapy offers Class IV Laser Therapy which has quickly become a vital tool in countless therapeutic and chiropractic procedures.
Class IV Lasers, which are nearly 20 times more powerful then cold lasers, are becoming the most widely used medical modalities with professional sports teams. Results are better and the healing process is faster than most other traditional therapeutic proceedures.
The Pilot Diode Laser increases blood circulation to muscles, joints and other areas of the body to allow patients to heal safely and more quickly with less pain and inflammation. Lasers for therapeutic use such as pain management are rapidly growing in recognition, application and demand.
For many therapeutic procedures, the Pilot Diode Laser is a versatile tool. Its technology gently increases cellular energy that accelerates the body’s self-healing capabilities, allowing patients to heal safely and quickly. Laser light is organized (coherent) and uniform, and as such is able to penetrate deeper into the tissue than from other sources. Thus deeper tissues benefit from the direct generation of heat from the laser light, rather than relying on transmission of heat through the surface tissues down to the deep tissue.
